Beware of holiday scams!
Consumer fraud schemes escalate each year during the holidays, and a new research report, “Seasons Cheatings,” from the AARP Fraud Watch Network finds that a significant number of consumers are at risk of becoming victimized by common seasonal scams.

Nope – no one will call you to serve you with a warrant over-the-phone. When a scammer calls, keep yourself in a calm state, and always report an attempted scam to the Federal Trade Commission.
If you’ve been the victim of a scam and don’t know where to turn, we’re here to help! Volunteers from our Fraud Watch Network Helpline will be standing by to talk to you live during our first-ever, online “Fraudcast” – a special event we’ve planned just for you!
